What impressed you positively?

"I thought Western U didn't have an athletic facility and I was impressed to learn that they allow students to use the nearby YMCA for free or give you $100 to use at Bally's. The OMT lab was nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A lot! Western U appears very run down from the outside and surrounding area. Security guards patrol the streets and it is unsafe to be out after dark. I was encouraged to live outside of Pomona so this was disappointing b/c I would like to live near campus so I could avoid Southern Cal traffic. This is a disappointment b/c I like to stay out and study late at the library. Tuition is definitely too high. I was also upset that we were not told who or how many people would be interviewing us.
